Volunteers-in-Parks (VIP) Program
At Grand Teton National Park, we welcome volunteers for a wide variety of projects and positions. Volunteer opportunities can be found in park visitor centers, maintenance, clerical work, science and cultural resources, and trail rehabilitation. Housing and RV sites are only available to select volunteers based on number of hours and area of service. We are grateful that each year we receive more offers from people to volunteer than we can accommodate. Thank you for your passion for protecting these places!

Hammer CorpsWith 695 historic resources in the park, Hammer Corps volunteers are essential to keeping Grand Teton's historic sites maintained and safe for future generations to experience and enjoy. Hammer Corps volunteers have the opportunity to participate in both short-term projects of just a day or two as well as long-term projects of multiple weeks.
Volunteers work on historic structures under the direction of an experienced volunteer group leader and are provided with tools, materials, and instruction in order to accomplish a variety of preservation projects at historic properties such as Mormon Row and Bar BC Ranch. All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate and no experience is necessary.
Those interested in volunteering with the Hammer Corps should visit www.volunteer.org.
Grand Teton National Park no longer has volunteer positions as Campground Hosts. All campgrounds are now managed by concessioners. Please contact the concessioners directly for more information, or visit their website here.
